SeeSaw for Kindergarten - Positional Words

Have you tried using the new app - SeeSaw learning journal for your students?  I was just introduced to it this year and I have to say, I am in love!  It is great!  The kids are so techy now-a-days that they learned it quicker than I did!  It is SUPER kid friendly that my kinders are independent when using it!

SeeSaw App Ideas for Kindergarten!  I use this positional word activity in my kindergarten classroom.  The kids record themselves on SeeSaw Learning Journal and learn positional words at the same time!  Check out how!

I have been exploring this app with my Kinders throughout the year and trying to find ways to incorporate it into our routine.

One thing that you kinder teachers know is our curriculum is so language based!  The kids need to verbalize so much and many of our assessments are done one-on-one.

I have used seesaw to help me!

(By the way, you can get a free month of Seesaw plus right here!  It has some really awesome features to help you communicate with parents, prepare for conferences, and track student progress!)

Here is how I used SeeSaw for Positional Words!
  • Give your students an animal.  
  • Tell them to place the animal somewhere in the room & take a picture.
  • Students then record their voice & say a sentence using positional words to describe where the animal is!  
Check it out here!
